V. Abisamis Handicraft
V. Abisamis Handicraft is a business owned by the husband and wife team of Vicente and Florisa Abisamis. It began in 1995 when Vicente took over his uncle’s original handicraft business. Since then, they have provided jobs to their townsfolk and helped showcase the talent of the people in their hometown of Tayabas, Quezon.
Starting out with just five workers, the team eventually grew to the current 20 who create baskets, birdhouses, ornaments, Christmas decors, lampshades, wire frame baskets and floor lamps made of indigenous materials. These materials include rattan, vines, wooden poles and barks, abaca, coco husk, cornhusk and coco leaves.
As a partner of CCAP, they enjoy benefits such as getting more orders through CCAP's network of buyers and gaining a competitive edge through CCAP’s regular trainings and seminars.
